DJ, MARCH 18 2005 - 3 STARS
- EP1
Here's a real musical oddity: Product.01 release remixes of a cover version they did of Blondie's big hit 'Heart Ov Glass'. Marc Adamo and Rochelle Vincente's cover version is an underground affair. German techno pop star Justus Köhncke disrupts the noughties continuum, re-working 'Glass' using a gently pulsing electro house backing and enigmatic synths reminiscent of 'New Gold Dream'-era Simple Minds.

iDJ, MAY 2005 - RECOMMENDED - 4 STARS - EP2

Tommie Sunshine finally produces the club-friendly mix this cover has been crying out for with his '1992 Candyflip' remix - splattered with acid and rave stabs, it's aptly named. You get an instrumental of the Prod's original, which reminds you how strong in depth their track really is, plus you get a swooping new creation, 'State Ov Electrik.'

JUICY MAGAZINE, JANUARY 2005
If you were to state the fact that you couldn't make a comparison between Product.01 and any other Electronica act in music industry you wouldn't be lying, the truth is there is no-one else like them around! Their style is fresh, it is a pure mixture of razor-sharp Electrobeats, heavy Synth-basslines and a riot of bleeps that is complimented by lashings of aural S&M.

NC, NEW CURRENTS , JUNE 2005 - EP OF THE MONTH - 4 STARS
Since their 2003 inception, Brighton-based electronica duo Product.01 certainly haven't wasted any time in making friends in high places. Their spiky electro revamp of the Blondie classic has found its way onto playlists of such luminaries as Tiga and Felix Da Housecat, while the video has recently been jumped all over by MTV. Two EPs to choose from here, EP1, with the glorious Justus Köhncke remix on the flip just begs for replay, but for me EP2's standout, State Ov Electrik, comes out tops - bursting with crunchy beats and brooding basslines, setting the perfect framework over which soar the ethereal vocals of singer Rochelle.

INTHEMIX.COM - RECOMMENDED

UK-based electro-breaks duo Product.01 (aka vocalist / lyricist Rochelle Vincente and beatmaker / programmer Marc Adamo) have already made a splash on the breaks scene with their remixes for the likes of Free*land and recent ‘Loud' EP, and this latest 12" through Compost presents the second slab of remixes of their recent breaks cover of Blondie's ‘Heart Of Glass', with reworkings from NYC's Tommie Sunshine and Output Recordings artist Lopazz as well as a previously unreleased new track.

On the A-side of this 12", Tommie Sunshine's lengthy ‘1992 Candyflip' reworking of ‘Heart Ov Glass' strips the icy robotics of the original track right down to just a burbling TB-303 bassline and crisp tech-house beats, whilst retaining pretty much all of Vincente's vocal and running it over some shimmering Detroit synth pads, shortly before things lock down into slamming acid-house squiggles and drum machine breakdowns during the chorus – of all of the mixes presented on this 12", this is easily the most main-room oriented, with a particularly nice ghostly dub feel lurking behind the whirring synths and delayed-out vocals.

There's an instrumental version of the Original version of ‘Heart Ov Glass' that pretty much does what it says on the tin, stripping out all of the vocals and also editing the track down slightly to a shorter running time, while new track ‘State Ov Electric' ventures down into dark, brooding and bleep-strewn breaks, Vincente's digitally twisted and contorted vocals sliding through the sinister electronic haze and robotic electro textures in a manner that calls to mind some of Bjork's ‘Homogenic' expeditions; there's also an indefinable Miami breaks effect behind the scenes that's sure to delight breaks fiends. Finally, on the flip, Output Recordings artist Lopazz opts for a smoky, low-slung funk approach on his reworking of ‘Heart Ov Glass', with funk guitars replacing the original version's synth riff and broad funk-bass slaps riding over a hiphop-inflected backbeat – while it takes the original to a considerably more downtempo place, Vincente's echo-treated vocals sound just as at home in these surroundings, the downbeat instrumental atmosphere calling to mind the likes of Bertrand Burgulat's nocturnal band invetigations.

An excellent remix EP that certainly covers many bases at once, with downtempo beats and darker-edged electro-breaks included alongside acid-house; there's something to please virtually everyone here, and in my opinion this 12" represents the more essential offering out of the two ‘Heart Ov Glass' remix EPs. Those who enjoyed Product.01's recent ‘Loud' EP should definitely give this a listen.

MEDIENKONVERTER.DE - 5 /6
Es ist schon erstaunlich: da werden erst EP #4 und #5 veröffentlicht und /Product.01 haben bereits das dritte Label. Nach dem Eigenvertrieb und BowWow hat nun das in München ansässige und bisher eher für elektronischen Chill-Out-Jazz bekannte Compost-Label die Ehre. ‚Heart ov Glass', der heimliche B-Seiten-Liebling von so manchem DJ wird im Rahmen eines dicken Remix-Paketes als A-Side wiederveröffentlicht. In guter Tradition geschieht dies ‚vinyl-only'. Das hat zumindest den Vorteil, dass die stylischen Plattencover richtig zur Geltung kommen.

Sieben Tracks verteilen sich auf zwei schwarze Scheiben, von denen die eine im März, die andere im April beim Plattenhändler des Vertrauens im Regal stehen soll. Der März bringt zunächst das energiereiche Original, einen Remix von Justus Köhncke und den Track ‚Melts'. Die Neuinterpretation von Köhncke der zuletzt für so illustere Künstler wie Stereo Total, International Pony oder Blumfeld als Remixer tätig war und gerade mit einem eigenen neuen Album am Start ist, entführt mit Sounds der 80er und zusätzlichen Gesang des Meisters ‚himself' in vergangene Tage und transferiert das gelungene Blondie-Cover vom Stroboskop-gefluteten Keller-Club in die Lounge im Erdgeschoß. Dabei stellt Köhncke Rochelles Stimme unverzerrt in den Vordergrund. Und das hat diese Stimme auch verdient! Die ersten vier Minuten kommen sehr minimal daher, bevor der eigentlich Song anfängt. Naja, DJs können das ja geschickt nach drei Minuten reinmischen. Passt schon! ‚Melts' zeigt schließlich, dass wo ‚/Product.01' draufsteht auch ‚/Product.01' drin ist. Weitaus düsterer und an die Zero/One EP angelehnt tritt hier der Underground-Charakter wieder in den Vordergrund und beruhigt den geneigten Hörer, der vielleicht Angst hatte, dass Rochelle und Mark ihre musikalischen Seelen dem Gott der Remixes verkauft hätten. Als Midtempo-Track wahrscheinlich nicht die erste Wahl der DJs aber auf jeden Fall ein starker Track.

EP2 wartet mit vier Tracks auf. Zunächst wäre da ein Instrumental-Edit des kompromisslos energetischen Originals, der Floorfiller schlechthin. Der Remix von Tommie Sunshine (genau: der der auch immer Hand an die Fischerspooner Tracks legen darf) spielt mit Acid-Sounds und Detroit-Anleihen, wie man in letzter Zeit immer häufiger wieder auftauchen. Das Konzept geht auf und macht ‚Heart ov Glass' auch interessant für die DJs, die eher mellow unterwegs sind. Der Dritte im Bunde ist Lopazz, der Heidelberger, der auf dem Label der Scissor Sisters in New York gesignt ist und – surprise, surprise – im letzten Jahr einen Remix für die Söhne Mannheims (Ooops!) abgeliefert hat. Funky Sounds führen dazu, dass hierbei eher eine entspannte Version herauskommt, die auch nicht von schlechten Eltern ist. Der zweite neue Track ‚State ov Electric' ist Electro in seiner reinsten Form und wird bestimmt Einzug in die Clubs finden.

Die Remixes variieren den Track geschickt ohne ihn dabei ‚tot zu mischen', so dass für jeden etwas dabei ist. Mit diesem Release sollten es Rochelle und Marc endgültig schaffen breitflächig in die Clublandschaft einzuziehen und so Ihren Bekanntheitsgrad weiter zu steigern. Mit den beiden Zugaben in Form von ‚Melts' und ‚State ov Electric' verkauft man hier 43 Minuten, die von vorne bis hinten Spaß machen. Thumbs up!

RA, RESIDENTADVISOR.NET - 7 /10
Product.01 return to the scene with the first Remix EP of their Heart Ov Glass release.
The Original Version kicks things off unleashing the reworking of Blondie's 80's hit. Bleeps and cut up effects surround the re-sung vocals creating this massive hit that Product.01 have created.
Melts is a down tempo track, full of swirling effects and quirky sounds.
On the flip we have the Justus Kohncke Remix of Heart Ov Glass, and he turns in a nice minimal reworking full of subdues bleeps and beats that soon turns nice and funky thanks to the vocal and the smooth baseline. A very talented man he is, and this remix shows just why.

The 2nd Remix EP features some more upbeat remixes of the Blondie remake.
Tommie Sunshine's 1992 Candyflip mix adds a bit of an acid touch to the package, with some crisp beats surrounded by acid lines and the main vocal. Not a bad remix at all, adding to the acid revolution with pride.
The Instrumental Version takes the twisted and stabbing effects from the Original and strips the vocal away, leaving an array of quirky sounds and gritty b-lines.
Turn it over and you first have State Ov Electrik. Another original production featuring the vocals of Rochelle, this track has an eerie feel to it with some nice subtle melodies that help build the track, until it hits some dark gritty baselines midway in. Nice work here, helped by the seductive vocals.
The Lopazz HOG Remix of Heart Ov Glass concludes the EP with a smooth remix featuring some subtle guitar riffs, bleeps and some smooth slow baselines.
Not a bad remix package yet again, with the Tommie Remix and State Ov Electrik standing out in particular.

The UK duo should be very proud to see the German label Compost releasing remixes of their hit "Heart Ov Glass". In addition to the original & instrumental versions plus two new tracks by Product.01, we find on these two EPs three interesting reworks. The first one is done by genius Justus Köhncke who probably had lot of fun producing this longplayer that sounds very 80s like some of his previous stuff. Of course Justus enhances this remix with his very own touch: long and minimal intro with strong bass, nice strings, naive and dissonant melodies and yes he did it: he's singing over Rochelle! Happy and crazy like most of the time, in one word: excellent! The second remix is produced by Tommie Sunshine who decided to go in an oldschool acid dancefloor direction. Finally, Lopazz, the style is a mix of soft electro break with funky guitar and slapped bass.

LIVEJOURNAL.COM/Moebius Rex
The freakazoid glitchpop jouissance of Product.01's update of "Heart Of Glass" was one of the experiences that provoked me to get myself into mp3 blogging. Early last year, Fluxblog posted it, I downloaded it, and shazam, I was hooked, both on the song and the manner in which it got to me. Now it's a bit over a year later, and Product.01's come out with two new EPs that present "Heart Ov Glass" remixes by such luminaries as Justus Köhncke and Tommie Sunshine alongside an instrumental mix and a couple new non-Blondie-related tracks.

I expected to be most wowed by the Köhncke or Sunshine contributions, but to my surprise I ended up falling for the Lopazz track in the end. After the relative bombast of the first two, I was seduced by Lopazz' mellow, nuanced take, which tilts ever so slightly on an axis of funky bass, bubbly guitar, and subliminal chime, with the unmodified vocals flitting above and beyond the melody like a summer swarm of butterflies. For some reason it brings to my mind green meadows, late afternoon sunlight shining through oak trees, the first fillaments
of fog blowing in from the coast. [Get it at Juno !]

Originally out last year,
Product 01's cover of
Blondie's classic is now
coming back on
Germany's Compost
with an array of
remixes split onto
two 12"s. The ever
busy Tommie Sunshine
rough things up in his
usual fashion (acid
tweaks and rave
stabs 128 BPM) whilst
Lopazz do their
sparse (yet dislocated)
thang (116). However
the best interpretation
of the lot has to come
from Justus Köhncke.
On top form these
days Kompakt's most
talented artist/

stands proud (116).
